in west texas, some of the death and damage could have been mitigated. today for it to work, and facilities have to pay attention to the federal register. it is probably not too difficult. facilities that maintain the national associations, like the ones we will hear from later today, also have access to this information. it is unaffiliated with outliers that dot our nation's landscape of concern. many of these facilities operate in areas where the responders are volunteers do not have the access to specialized training that are necessary to respond to the explosions. i am troubled by the prospect of thousands or maybe tens of thousands of these facilities operated under the radar screen in there used to be a sense of urgency on this issue at all levels. it is essential between osha and dhs and the coast guard and state regulators and there has to be enough information available to identify those facilities that could pose a risk. that information needs to be shared. the next challenge is to ensure that dhs analyzes the facilities that provide information and gao has told us
. maybe when we saw something at the mailbox in east texas and turned out to be someone's science project we thought it was a bomb. we scrolled, you know, actually after the world trade center and the pentagon maybe some neighborhood in texas was not going the target. and even if you are saying, you know, there's better safe than sorry. maybe the police did not -- to take after they figured out it was a school project. that's the kind of paranoia i like to spend time discussing in the book. it's easy to say look it's the great people. who believe in conspiracy theory. there are crazy folks in the book. but all sorts of every day people, people that watch c-span, people that, you know, can get seized by it at different time. we later realize that it was a little bit over the top. >> with the revelation about the nsa, the irs, in your view, should we be paranoid? >> i never want encourage to be paranoid. it's good to be scect -- i'm for good solid investigative journalism. >> what is one of your favorite conspiracists or leaders from our history? >> from our history. well, some of the inter
with three stars. every three-star had to address all. i went to the reserve center in texas to address the reserve component. and we are stressing three things. first of all, the real emphasis on the east coast training at every level, both in the entry level training and then continuing our pme and the list of officers to talk about expected conduct and the ethos of being a warrior and treating everyone with fairness and dignity. the last thing is we are taking a hard look at being able to harden the target if you will by getting the supervision back on the reserve component, getting supervision into the places like hotels where they spend their time during the drill weekends to ensure the proper level supervision is there and that you ensure the folks that would come in and do harm are identified quickly and separated just as quickly. >> the navy is doing the same thing as the marine corps. we are very much into the barracks come in to where our sailors are on the drill weekend and throughout the week. we found that about 50% of the reports have to do with alcohol, and so we are push
years, roughly, rough numbers, about 1 million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. and roughly a million lost jobs in california. that's amazing but, in fact, one of the points that we are writing a book on this is what we're seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history, geographically, from states like california that don't get it right. my home state of illinois is another example in states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be very bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing also is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilate in immigrants so that they are successful. telephone is much more of a welfare state. it in dr. mays immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas in my opinion for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you're saying i think the different economic outcomes as a result of this. texas is the mall the other sta
was wounded in an automobile driving into the downtown dallas along with the governor of texas. they have been taken to the hospital where their condition as yet unknown. we haven't been told their condition at dallas and a downtown hotel room a group has been gathered to hear president kennedy awaiting his arrival. let's head down there now where we are on the air. >> as you can imagine there are many stories that are coming in to the actual condition of the president. one is that he is dead. this cannot be confirmed. another is that the governor is in the operating room. this we have not confirmed. the president was whisked from the scene of the attempted assassination or assassination, depending upon his condition this hour to the hospital, and the president undoubtedly in the emergency room at the hospital would be on the first floor of the apartment. we are awaiting something more officials that is of course difficult certainly to go on the reports back at the cbs newsroom in new york. we have just been advised of dallas the diffusions are being governed to president kennedy. let us recal
in a mailbox in east texas and this is a true story that turned out to be a science project, but we thought it was a bomb. after the world trade center and the pentagon, may be said would not be the preferred target. even if you say it's better safe than sorry, maybe the police did not meet after they figured out it was a project to confiscate it just in case. that's the kind of paranoia that to spend time discussing in the book because it is some name that's easy to say that the crazy people who believe in conspiracy theories. there are some crazies in not book. all stories of everyday people who watch c-span. people can get different times and made her realize it was a little bit over the top. >> host: with the revelations about the nsa, irs come in your view should we be paranoid? >> guest: i never want to encourage people to be paranoid because that's a clinical term. it is certainly good to be skeptical and suspicious a lot of the time. i am all for good, solid investigative journalism is grounded in facts and evidence. >> host: jesse walker, who was one of your favorite conspiracies o
fight over closing abortion clinics in texas or something, like a real substantive issue that's been reported on by someone who has talked to people, left their house and met with people, wrote a really good piece. that's next to this story. that's journalism. to me it's not really that come in the end it comes down to pretty basic stuff. you can have things you can talk about and the journalism. does that mean they are not worth reading about? i think they're both fine. i read heavy stories when i want to click on the tabs, but also want to know about what's going on in texas. if it's a bunch of photographs, with funny captions, i love those. we have those, too but it's not journalism t too much as me it s a fun read. it's not that hard to differentiate. i think it's great. betting and what is it? it's like human interest, right? >> if you like those you must check out 20 reasons why john stanton should be on the list of the most beautiful people.

[laughter] if you can't see me, at least you can hear me. anyway, i was delighted to accept the invitation to speak before the bipartisan policy center for a couple reasons. number one, because of the outstanding work that you have done in the housing arena, and number two, i live about three miles from here, so it took me seven minutes to get here. the truth is as a fairly new chairman of a standing committee of congress, truth be known, i have a number of speaking invitations that come my way, a lot of press interested in speaking to me, but i assure you i don't have to work to remain humble, but because i have a lot of speaking invietnamese-americanation, i accept a number of them, and at this home i have three miles from here, that two months ago i was working on one of those speeches after dinner, and my wife, who helps keep me humble, comes into my study and says, "okay, in washington you may be mr. chairman, but in dallas, you're mr. dishwasher, and they are not getting any cleaner." i took my wife's subtle
the numbers, that kind of discretion was gone. he came from texas, a registered republican, which a lot of people find surprising given what he did. his dad was a police officer. he was an outsider in terms of the police department culture. he didn't grow up in bay ridge or jamaica or south bronx. he was on the outside. he didn't have any ties here. he didn't want to be a police officer. he had been in the navy as a coreman, got out, and worked for motorolla on software chips and only moved back to new york because his mother got sick. she was very sick. she said to him -- there was an ad for police department for police recruiting ad after 9/11 said try to be a police officer. he said, oh, i don't want to do that. she finally convinced him, and he took the test, did very well, they called him immediately, and he found himself standing there in the police academy, and for the first couple years, he went along with the program. the first thing you do as a police officer is go to impact where you are sent to a high crime precinct as a rookie, and for eight months, told to write tickets. y
to remember is -- and texas adel i use the cut a billion dollars in and they put 1 dollar even though one put in a billion times more than the other, they have the same right. that, to me seems awfully fair. you take a system on the other hand where half the people don't even pay any income taxes but they get to have a say at how much they have paid that is fair. give me a break. we need to start thinking about things that work for everybody. and in the process of doing that, i think we will not have any limitation on the number of jobs that are created. and in the opportunities that are provided. for someone that grew up in the very lowest rungs of society and socioeconomic status it's because we have a system that allowed that. they still do ought what is getting more difficult. i want to make sure it remains easy for people who are willing to work hard and do the right things to be successful in our society. >> host: what is the political reaction to the speech? >> guest: there were a lot of people who were shocked. and to me that is alarming that in america we are the land of freedom we w

in dc, and i think all the perspectives, i hope, enrich the readers here in north texas. i mean, that's how i see it. it's -- one thing i promised parents was i would never cover drug trafficking. we lived on the border in el paso, and that was something you knew not to touch or mess around with because it could come back and bite you. by the early -- after the president and george w. bush relationship, after 9/11, the immigration policy was not going anywhere. i decided best thing for me was to get back to mention -- mexico. there was industry changes. the economic crisis affected us, and i was basically had no other choice other than cover drug trafficking because it was the big story. it's, i think, like many mexicans, i had tried to look away or not really -- not really look at the monster, you know, face-to-face. after that incident, after that, i covered various stories and saw how deep the penetration was. from that point on, i mean, i didn't look back. it is a personal story. it's a personal memoir and gorpny, but i hope that enriches the reader in many ways. >> ambassador, ho

in texas justifying. georgia has cut that they're spending. it arkansas's closing jails. 10 years ago we were talking about three strikes and everything else. there is a meeting of the minds and the wallets here because if you want to cut government spending a great place to do it with nonviolent offenders. it is possible. there are a lot of sensible people out there in the middle. they just need to be spoken to and nudged. the. >> i think we have to remember the reason they don't want people to vote because they're afraid people are going to vote for their own interests and i believe that the issue of incarceration, tomas incarceration has a lot to do with the privatization of the prison system. people are making -- it's a business. people are making huge profits from folks in jail. >> one of the things that you just said, we have to remember that we want to use that money to educate them and that is one of the things that people are doing when the states want to get the money back. but they are not talking about what they are going to use the money for. and i think education, we have a
of texas where i give my ph.d. in philosophy and went to the jobs bulletin board and the only thing that there was a notice from the department of labour about minimum wage and what you are entitled to. it didn't look so promising not there. so i saw a student walked by and i said how are you doing and they said fine. i did my ph.d. here? they said how is it working out? i have a radio show. i said that's good on that dialogue i hope this. anyway, we talk a lot about the jobs in the book because they are the jobs that are very much worth at and they are the course of study at least at the present is quite worth that. we based some of the conclusions we came up with in the book on the return on investment findings on the pay scale from the year 2012 to 2013 the numbers are up, too and this has shown that this pattern continues. the top ten institutions giving you a return on investment are all technical institutions or institutions that emphasize or have a very strong presence in science technology engineering and math. i mentioned the colorado school of mind at the tent is stamford

in houston, texas. it's interesting. it's the only radio station in the country whose transmitter who was blown up for the ku klux klan. they strapped dynamite to it and blew it to smith reins. the silver line it's not as if they had a money to advertise the new stationing and blew it to the consciousness of the potential listening audience and the people of houston when they got back on the feet and rebuilt the transmitter. the clan blew it up again. i don't remember was it grand dragon, i often confuse their titles, but he said it was proudest fact. i think that's because he understood how dangerous independent media is. dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. and when you hear a palestinian child or an israeli grandmother, an aunt from iraq or uncle from afghanistan telling their story, it makes it much more difficult to caricature on stereo type. it begins the process of understanding of finding common ground. you don't have to agree with them. how often do we agree with our family members? you start to understand where they're coming from. i believe the media

is not a static train. it lives and evolves. we were in the humiliation. from texas up to maryland we can use a single public but a ph.d. lawyer degree you had to go to the restroom was seldom ever cleaned. black soldiers were on the military bases as the flag flew above them. at least they were white. the monuments you couldn't buy ice cream at howard johnson, couldn't rent a room at the holiday inn. you couldn't have a tent on the lawn of the state capitals. there were no black juries in the south. when ms hill was killed, the killers were set free by the all white jury in the case of emmett till they said they knew the killer was guilty but if he had been found guilty he would have gone to the jail. we live on the racial tierney. that is the context of those times. we couldn't use a gps to go south. we had to go places we knew what churches or black colleges along the way. so first the speech was about addressing the humiliation when dr. king said one day my little children will be able to use the park. we couldn't go to the zoo or the skating rink or the swimming pool. the currency that m
system that is riddled with credits and loopholes. you know, a friend of mine is a member from texas who sits on that committee and he said the tax code is four times the size with none of the good news. it's a pretty good summary. >> yes, it is. >> in your opinion, if a presidential candidate made that a major point, would it carry anything? >> yes, i think it would. and whenever things that the tax system is fair. it's always been an issue that resonates with america. taxes were one of the reasons that we declared our independence in the first place. we thought we ought to have a direct say in it, which we did. i think it is a major, you know, after her. i think you're going to see it more particularly if congress cannot act in the next couple of years, in this divided situation. i suspect whoever is running for president will make it a major issue. the last time that we had really important tax stuff, ronald reagan was president. he ran on what was called camp rock, it was lowering the rates 90. another part of it out in the tax reform act of 1986. helped to get him elected and reelec

am from howard payne university in texas. and my economic development costs, we read a book about western imperialism and how the u.s. and great britain kind of imposed the western views on other countries. and it talks about state-owned enterprises and how those can be beneficial in some cases. in your opinion is there ever a time if they don't have a price can be beneficial, you know, at least to get it started and is it ever possible that the private owned. is it ever a good thing, or is it always like this. tonight that's an excellent question. >> a couple of years on earth day is coming a lot of trouble. the u.s. postal service has basically delivered. in order to keep 300,000 trucks delivering these things can take it to a landfill. this is the area that i study my research relationship. for the government to be a primary customer in the industry, it is devised for the postal system. the transcontinental railroad is an example. and the internet was handed over to the public. so there are times that i believe the government has a legitimate role. but no, i don't think that th

are from kentucky, utah, texas, generally the most conservative senators are conservative states and the most conservative congressmen are from rural districts. i think realistically if the republican party is going to be a more limited government party as we're talking about, you're going to start having more senators from purple states and congressmen from suburban districts that are elected and limited government candidates. but typically in these more urban or suburban districts or purple states you're not going to have the more conservative candidates winning in primaries. so i'm just concerned how realistic is that to expect the party to truly be taken over by more limited government candidates? >> sure. that definitely is a major challenge because what we've seen really since the rise of the conservative movement with the founding of national review in 1955 and some events before that, we've really only had two movement conservatives nominated for president by the republican party. we had barry goldwater in 1964 who went on to lose and then ronald reagan who went on to win

it to bob smith who lives in texas and is reported to be an anti-government guy. the interview him and he says i am a loyal american. i'd just like my guns. i would never do anything bad. they closed the investigation and the police say you might want to keep your eye on him because he has a lot of guns. do you think people in the congress might have a problem with that? so we have to realize that we could increase the safety net that we have but it has implications for what the state and local authorities do and how that potentially and hinges upon the civil liberties and how we want to live our life independent of the officials investigations. >> i would completely agree with mike on this and the problem as the observations are made that we have the advantage of hindsight and i think that one lesson is our collection capabilities the way that we are able to collect information has increasing so that almost inevitably when something happens when we had something like a boston marathon attack we are going to be able to look back and find points of opportunity where we had an opportunity t

] i thought it would be very grateful because i'm from california, i'm in texas, to start talking about the state rivalry and making fun of california but apparently that was done. i guess the only thing we're hoping is that now that you're, now that your governor is retiring that he will spend next two years trying to get university of southern california usc, judy, usc, the university of south dallas. so please don't let that happen. so yes, we did a report about a year ago funded by the knight foundation called citizen kane which is a really great title for those of us my age, when you tell young people said something, what does that mean? but what we looked at was what would the gains in particular just for naturalization. an interesting thing was for those who are nerds, we tried to control for english and with ability, reasons of migration speak you can find this by using the words announced. spent i'm an economist. i feel naked without a regression. basically we try to control for everything that should explain difference between citizen and noncitizen immigrants, and we st
from texas who wrote president obama urging that the house approach be preserved in the final bill. >> without objection. and also i would like to introduce into the record a letter from u.s. representative and six of his colleagues to my democratic colleagues. >> without objection. >> basically this letter is describing where in texas this of this problem and suggested that -- they urged the president of the house approach should be preserved. leaders in their state oppose the bill and there will not bother to create an exchange leaving uninsured state residents with no way to benefit from the new law. so it was not an accident that federal exchanges were left out as was suggested. for him to suggest that you, mr. adler, and the others on this panel are just engaging in self-defeating span were looking to buy the glitch to bring this of kellogg down, would you disagree with that? >> as i mentioned before, i first heard about these provisions in the law before i was aware of the way that these provisions interacted with, for example, the employer mandate. before it was clear that t
myself, there's no con texas in civil discovery or otherwise in which one may define relevance broadly enough to take in information regarding each and every single american who owns a telephone. the answer i give you to that, senator, we are not really accessing or getting in to all that have meta data that is stored in the data base. we don't get to roam around in it. we don't get to look tat to our heart's content and say this and that is relevant. let's take that. you have to look in the context of the primary order which was declassified and issued today. the only way you can access it is if you have reasonable suspicious that the number you are going query off of is in fact related to specific terrorist groups. and that has to be documented. if you don't have that, you can't get in to this. i think the surveillance cop accept, i think is very important here, you cannot surveil this without the gate being checked to. >> the gate is not controlled by a warrant, i mean, if you want to access that. you don't want to get a warrant to access it. it's controlled by internal procedure; c

. not to forget the court this past term also decided an affirmative action case from the university of texas, in which affirmative action survived by a hair. i am persuaded that by that the decision the supreme court is setting up the law to strike down racial diversity as a compelling justification for race conscious affirmative action programs. but taken together i think we can say three things about each of those events or images, each of which offers us an approach on to the state of black politics in the united states today. about that supreme court decision in his opinion for the court, the chief justice, justice roberts says it's something that i do not think could have been set 50 years ago and would not have been set 50 years ago by a member of the u.s. supreme court. there is a moment in the opinion in which he frankly admits that racial discrimination in american life, particularly here in the voting excess and goes on to say no one denies that. yet by the end of the opinion, what he has given us is a legal judgment, the reading of the constitution, which effectively says racial d
